The Questions Project: Adrienne Donica

Adrienne Donica is one of the most angelic people I’ve ever met. On second thought, I don’t know if angelic is the proper term, but she’s wonderful and funny and brilliant and extraordinarily successful and I’m super excited to have the best person ever as a friend in my life. Also, she has super stellar bangs. She’s debating on getting a bob, which she doesn’t think will work with bangs, but I say BANGS 4 DAYZ.

p.s. We’re going to pretend I’m 100% on top of my stuff and this post came out Friday and not Tuesday. 🙂

1. What was the last picture you took with your phone?
A pano at the football game against South Carolina to send to my family.

2. Have you ever been pulled over by a cop?
Never pulled over, but I’ve had other encounters.

3. What’s your heritage?
I’m half Polish with some German and other European ties.

4. What was the last lie you told?
Uhhhh…that’s incriminating information, but it wasn’t anything that serious.

5. What’s the weirdest prank you’ve ever done?
Freshman year I stole a cake from my friend Witt and hid it in my mini fridge. His godmother sent it to him, so when he came to confront me about it, I ended up feeling really terrible. In general, though, I’m the best at pranking my mom.

6. Do you trust anyone with your life?
Yes.

7. Describe the perfect pizza.
Sausage and green peppers from Shakespeare’s.

8. What was your first thought when you woke up this morning?
Can I sleep for another 20 minutes? (The answer was no.)

9. You discover that your wonderful one-year-old child is because of a mix up at the hospital and not yours. Would you want to exchange the child to correct the mistake?
My first thought is no, but that seems a little mean to my legitimate kid. I guess I just hope I never get to a point where I’m in this situation.

10. Would you be willing to lie to a court for a close friend if it meant saving your friend from going to prison for life?
If it would hurt someone else (which is likely), no.

11. Would you be willing to eat a bowl of crickets for money?
Dead or alive? For how much money? My short answer is possibly.

12. If you could have anyone locked in a room so you could torment them for a day, whom would you choose and how would you torment them?
All I can think about is who would torment me. The list is getting long, so maybe I like fewer people than I thought.

13. If you could be any age for a week, what age would you be?
I’m pretty happy at 21, but I would like to remember a week from when I was three.

14. Who was the last person you sang to and what did you sing?
I aggressively sang “Linger” by The Cranberries to my roommate Katie in the car the other day.

15. What question do you hate being asked?
First they say, “Yooooo, Adrienne.” Then they laugh a little and ask, “Has anyone ever said that to you?” *insert massive eye roll here*

16. If you could have only one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?
I make this delicious pasta dish with a roasted red pepper and sun-dried tomato cream sauce. That, plus a lot of fruit.

17. How do you start a conversation?
“Hey, how’s it going?”

18. If you had a brainwashing machine, who would you use it on?
Anyone who’s trying to control the rights to my body.

19. Have you ever eaten a crayon? What’s the strangest thing you’ve eaten?
I’ve tasted crayon before, but I wouldn’t say I’ve eaten a crayon.

20. Are you still learning who you are?
Yeah… Isn’t everyone?

21. What’re you afraid of?
Falling down stairs and outer space.

22. Do you dance?
I LOVE dancing. Columbia needs better places to go dancing.

23. What’s the weirdest thing about you?
My roommate Sam and I do this weird thing where we talk to each other using sounds instead of words and don’t realize it’s happening until it’s too late.

24. What’s the most normal thing about you?
I decided to become a journalist because I wanted to ~change the world~.

25. What are your thoughts on honesty?
I guess I have a lot of thoughts. I’m always urging people to be honest, but I know it can be a really difficult thing to do. It’s important to be honest to yourself, too. At the end of the day, honestly helps us be more genuine, which I think is one of the highest compliments you can give someone.

26. What do you want your tombstone to say?
Nothing. I want to donate my body to science. If they don’t want me, I want to be buried in one of those organic burial pods that grows a tree instead.

27. What’s your biggest pet peeve?
When people (aka my brother) leave just a little bit of cereal in the box so it’s not enough to eat or throw away.

28. What feels like love to you?
I don’t think it’s just one thing. Love encompasses a lot of little things. It sounds weird but when I think about the people I love or have loved, I have a deep appreciation for each of them. I know my life would be worse off if I hadn’t met them.

29. What’s a skill you’d like to learn and why?
I’d love to learn how to write spoken word poetry. There’s something so powerful about words in this form.

30. How would your friends describe you?
Independent, loyal, responsible. My favorite, though, was when a friend described me as linguistic.
